The mayapple is described within www.en.wikipedia.org as "widespread and appears in clonal colonies in open mesic woodlands...". Just exactly why the mayapple grows where it does is relative to the McKean County PA mucousal-artifact oracle-bead site, where the memory-image of a baby-palm-tree appears as a 'speck' at the surface of the oracle-bead chronicle in its placement beneath limestone roadside-rest/monument base and ground. Mayapples have also been seen alongside Niles Hollow Road between Custer City and Marshburg in northwestern Pennsylvania, as example.
The Bradford Era dated 5/4/2011 presents, 'Eldred native on bin Laden burial ship', a front-page story. Eldred Township in McKean County PA is situated east from Bradford PA and also east from Degolia PA where the mucousal-artifact site was discovered decades ago, said archaeological site consisting in part of a tiny waxy/gel history-bead filled with numerous and worldwide palm-tree memory-images that were subsequently mentally 'absorbed' within certain social situations. The U. S. Navy member was "...1995 graduate of Otto-Eldred High School...", 'Otto' being another township east from Bradford as is Oster Township.
